Review: Skinny Bitch Gets Hitched by Kim Barnouin


Source: Publisher/Simon & Schuster

I know this isn’t the type of book that I normally review, but last week was Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon and I knew that I needed something lighter than my normal picks to get through it. Skinny Bitch Gets Hitched, the second novel by the author of the bestselling Skinny Bitch cookbook series, follows vegan chef Clementine as she works to open a new restaurant and marry the meat-eating millionaire, Zach. As with all chick lit books, there’s a love story, some tension, a cute third-party person, as well as a lot of laughs.

What’s different about this book is that it all takes place within food world, which is perfect for chick lit fans who are also foodies (in particular, vegans). Clementine is passionate, doesn’t take any crap (hence the name of her restaurant – the No Crap Café), and loves her restaurant more than just about anything. She also loves Zach, which is why his odd behavior following his proposal (not to mention his momster) causes her a lot of stress, and it’s this tension that drives the book.

Chick lit fans will eat this up (no pun intended), but foodies will enjoy it, too. You’ll race through it, laugh along the way, and drop your jaw at some of the things Clementine does and says. So when you pack up your things and head to the beach this summer, Skinny Bitch Gets Hitched is a good one to throw in your bag.

    I read the original book – Skinny Bitch. It was quite a read, in terms of grossing me out – atleast certain parts of the book. I wonder if I should pick this one up.

      This one is fiction, rather than non-fiction so it’s totally different. It’s worth a shot.

    I love a little chick lit now and again. It’s a fun change of pace :).
